Located just across the California-Oregon border on the Harbor "bench," this home is just minutes south of Brookings, which is often referred to as the "banana belt" of the Oregon Coast.
There is room for six people to sleep, eat, read, and recharge at this house. Observe harbor seals, diving pelicans, osprey, cormorants, and look for whale spouts. Relax indoors or on the two large decks, or spend a quiet moment on the meditation deck beneath the alder trees. A hot tub with privacy shades and an ocean view accommodates three at a time, while the kitchen and outdoor gas grill allow cooking space for everyone.
Comfortable sleeping arrangements include two downstairs bedrooms with queen beds, plus a full bath with a shower/tub. The large loft has ocean views and a king-size bed plus an additional bathroom. All in all, this beach cottage can sleep six guests.
Cable TV and WiFi Internet service will help you stay connected with the rest of the world, though you may be happy to turn your devices off and sit on the deck with your feet up and something delicious to drink, instead!
Food and drink are fun to find at local microbreweries, a brandy distillery, and a variety of American, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and chain eateries nearby.
If activity is your goal, you can shop, fish, golf, hike, bike, or walk at many nearby sites. McVay State Recreation Area is a short walk down the street and is set up for disc golf as well as offering access to clamming, beach strolls, and agate, shell, and rock hunting. Hundred-year-old azaleas run throughout Brookings' Azalea Park, just over the bridge that crosses the Chetco, one of Oregon's wild and scenic rivers.
Charter fishing excursions are available at the Port of Brookings-Harbor, which is still an active fishing port. Harris Beach State Park offers a long, sandy walking beach, and at Loeb Park you can swim, tube on the river, picnic, or hike through ancient redwoods.
Free local events are held nearly every month, including art festivals, a salmon derby, kite festival, pirate festival, summer concerts in Azalea Park, a chili cook-off, and races to honor Oregon's famous banana slug. The port, just two miles from your vacation rental, hosts many of these festivals. It also features shops, dining, and a boardwalk overlooking the marina. Further information is available at the Chamber of Commerce office there.
You know how you need that space that calms your minds and body., this was one such place. Exactly as pictured, amazing views and had everything we needed.
Although, it was perfect, it was cleaned long back and when we reached we did find a cob web and the coffee mugs were old/used too.
We had to wash everything before using any utensil, but we didn't mind it.. the view was to die for.
Instructions were good and detailed and this was our second time booking with vacasa. Once in Maui and Oregon and we were never disappointed. Loved everything in the house.

This is our second stay and just love this place. Quiet, private right on the ocean...what not to love?
Betty P.May 2019
The ocean was right there and very relaxing. Had a great time. House was very quiet and comfortable.

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay at Harbor House. The home is comfortable and well kept and within a short drive to amazing hikes in Samuel Boardman Scenic Corridor, Jedidiah Smith, and the National Redwoods park as well. The views from the hot tub were incredible! Great location for families!
Kathleen H.Nov 2018
My daughters and I spent our 3 days as a working strategy weekend. We all have our own businesses. This was the perfect house to clear our minds and focus on what we came for. Loved the picture windows, the large round table where we could all work and exchange ideas, being able to work on the front deck, take a break and go for a walk on the beach. Clean, accomodating kitchen, comfy beds, beautiful surroundings. One of my best coast stays.
Heath R.Oct 2018
The view, beautiful home, hot tub, EVERYTHING! No complaints at all. Recommend to all.
Curtis R.Oct 2018
Loved the views and such a great location!

Very comfortable home away from home for our family of 4. Views were awesome and area is very quiet and safe. We are from Ohio and flew out to meet daughter and son-in-law and it was a perfect place for visiting and feeling right at home. We will definitely be back for a couple visits per year.
Riel M.Apr 2018
Amazing view, close to town, easy walk to the beach, and a nice hot tub. We had a great time! Some minor issues we dealt with, we were not sure if bed linens were clean, and a lack of toilet paper, also the propane was empty and we had to go fill it. Other than that we had an awesome time!!
Shelley W.Mar 2018
Our stay in Brookings was absolutely wonderful. This beautiful home provided everything we needed. We enjoyed long walks on the beach and listening to the waves crash as we went to sleep each night. Very peaceful!
Jennifer C.Mar 2018
Harbor House is a warm and friendly home, with 180 degree views of the ocean. You can see the outer entrance to the harbor, all the way out to the St. George Reef lighthouse! We were there during a major storm-torrential rain, hail, sleet and the ocean was rough and wild. But chilling in the comfort of the home, warm and dry offered us the most relaxing weekend! The home is well equipped, clean and cozy. We will return to Harbor House!!!
Rob J.Mar 2018
Had a great time , the house was very cozy, the view spectacular
Cyrus H.Feb 2018
If you want to see the ocean and all it's beauty than rent this house for as long as your vacation offers. You have the best of both worlds with Crescent City or Brookings. Great stay cation with great views. Enjoy.
Elizabeth T.Jan 2018
We love the Harbor House! We've stayed twice now, and plan to visit again. The views are amazing and the sound of the ocean is wonderful. We love soaking in the hot tub and watching seals through the spotting scope. It's great that you can walk to the beach easily from the house as well!
Barbara M.Dec 2017
This home does not disappoint! Views are fabulous and the home is lovingly stocked and comfortably furnished.
Jan S.Nov 2017
The home suited our needs just right, and the ponies next door were a bonus! My family came to town for a week and we put them up here; it was awesome.
Kay S.Oct 2017
What a relaxing get away for those who are exploring or those who just want to sit and enjoy
Penny H.Oct 2017
We had a very nice stay. The house is located overlooking the beach and you can watch the ocean as well as hear the waves to put you to sleep. Also a quiet location away from town. The service and people were all very nice and accommodating.
Tracy G.Sep 2017
The Harbor House was a wonderful vacation home. We purposely chose this home for it's ocean views and close proximity to the Redwoods in Northern California. We were delighted and felt very fortunate to have found such a cute home, with spectacular views and a relaxing country atmosphere.
William B.Aug 2017
Location and ocean view was excellent. Decking wonderful.
House was less than anticipated.
Catherine C.Aug 2017
Great location! Awesome views!
Myrna F.Aug 2017
My family and I had the best vacation ever! The house is great and having it so close to the beach made our time there very special. It was wonderful to be able to look out the window and see a perfect sunset every night.
The beds were comfortable and the whole house very welcoming. Thank you!
Trudie S.Jul 2017
Beautiful surroundings and a great place to relax. If your looking for things to do in town though here is not much there.
John Walter R.Jul 2017
Amazing ocean view, beautiful home😁
Susan E.Jul 2017
This is a fabulous rental, extremely comfortable for a group. We were celebrating a 40th birthday with a daughter-in-law and it was the perfect setting. The deck is so nice you don't feel the need to go anywhere but we did take long walks on the beach. We bought fresh produce from the Farmer's Market and fresh fish at the harbor which we grilled and had a memorable birthday dinner on the deck.
We look forward to our next visit and will be back.

Property and location were as advertised. Stunning beach!! (Which was a stones throw from the house deck)
Larry B.Jun 2017
Great location and nice property. Just wish there was a little simpler way to reach the water. Everything worked fine.
Adria H.May 2017
The rental is fine and the location is nice. Beach access is reasonable. Hot tub does not work and cost was very high for this rental given the amenities especially as the hot tub is a big flop. Feel like I've paid way too much for this rental.
We are sorry to see the hot tub appeared to have not been working for this guest. We were not notified of this during their reservation, and upon checking once we received this review it was found to be in working order.
Ann J.May 2017
We were very comfortable. House has a terrific view. Not a lot to do in Brookings, but a lovely area.
Rosemary D.Apr 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbor House. This was our 2nd visit in a year's time. Hope to make it back another time!
Jennifer S.Mar 2017
This is an older home, but we were very happy here. The view, beach, and hot tub are the big selling point.
Deleen S.Mar 2017
Overall a lovely place and fantastic ocean view.
Pat B.Feb 2017
Five quilters fit comfortably in this house. All had small sewing tables facing the ocean. Lots of space for cutting table and irons. A great quilt store nearby.
Danielle W.Feb 2017
House was good only complaint would be furnishings are little older beds a bit small and tv very few channels, if you can find them, but wifi great, location beautiful, hottub and kitchen great....house itself feels spacious with high ceilings and loft, feels like it could sleep more than six- has plenty of books, games, telescope/binoculars ... I imagine probably more beautiful in the summer than stormy winter days which is when we were there but overall I would definitely rent this house again.
Audrey B.Jan 2017
Great location with close beach access-not on property-but a short walk away. Hot tub overlooking the ocean was great. A larger hot tub would be nice, it's only 3 person, but it was wonderful! We had everything we could possibly need in the kitchen. The array of books was amazing. We found several books about the local area and history. Very interesting and convenient to have these resources at the house. Thanks for a great holiday.
Tonia A.Jan 2017
We had an amazing time. View is awesome, house is awesome, hot tub is amazing
Laurie A.Dec 2016
Had a very wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family at Harbor House. Would def recommend!
Mimi S.Nov 2016
We will be back, without a doubt!
Susan S.Nov 2016
All in all we had a great time. There were 3 of us on a girls weekend (2 60' ishes and a 39yr old). We were there to celebrate a Birthday. As we had expected we had rain but we did still try to get out between showers. The time we were indoors we were able to watch the ocean from a great view and could hear the sounds of the ocean as well. The beach access was hard to find and access and once down on the beach there is not much beach to walk on. The house was very comfortable, well stocked, and clean. The wood stove does not work, but they do have a couple of the portable wood stove look- a- likes that help heat the house and put off flames to look at.
Kris F.Nov 2016
We spent a few days mid-October at this home and were satisfied with our experience. Any small complaints pale in comparison to the location. We enjoyed our first time by the ocean in Brookings.
Allan H.Sep 2016
The location of your house was excellent. The house itself is truly put together with the cheapest interior design. The paneling all over is hideous and does the house no justice. It would be nice to have some umbrellas to protect of the heat on the porch. Overall, pretty dismal.
Taunya C.Sep 2016
We enjoyed the view, walks to the beach. Quiet and Private.
Melissa D.Aug 2016
Nice path to the beach. I forgot my laptop and it was returned to me with no problem and quickly.
Pam A.Aug 2016
This home was very comfortable for our stay in Brookings. It was clean and quiet, with a spectacular view.
John T.Aug 2016
Great location and the views were astounding
Aaron D.Aug 2016
Nice place close to everything we wanted to see and enough room for our family of 6.
Lionel L.Aug 2016
We loved it. Incredible View
John C.Jul 2016
Very relaxing place to stay.
Shelly C.Jun 2016
The location of this house was great and we really enjoyed staying here.
Rosemary S.May 2016
Very lovely and comfortable home with fantastic views of coast. Very convenient to the Redwoods also! We hope to come back again.
Donald L.May 2016
Everything was awesome on our vacation at this rental. Words cannot do it justice.
Kara R.May 2016
This was a great spot to stay in and the house was well cared for and stocked with lots of things to make you feel right at home. Its location is about 10 minutes north of the California border and around 30 or 45 minutes north of the nearest Redwoods. Brookings was decent and had everything you would need. It comfortably fits the maximum allowed capacity of occupants and has a great amount of game and things to do on rainy days. The yard was well taken care of and so pretty. We had one issue with the hot tub and it was resolved the day we called. My family and I loved it and would definitely think about staying there again. Great experience and beautiful place.
Dallin T.May 2016
Had lots of fun great place wish there was access to the beach from the home but the access was just to the south great tide pools and lots to see
Keri C.Apr 2016
Stayed here for 4 nights . loved the house , location Sat out on the deck enjoying the views...slept so well the beds are awesome. Beach access a very short walk away. All in all a very beautiful ,peaceful,comfortable home.
Jacob T.Mar 2016
This house was a blast! Very nice location, and the view was phenomenal. Definitely planing on renting it again.
Rebecca F.Mar 2016
this place is great, it has beautiful views, very clean and comfy, we had a great time here, it is a bit disappointing to find that there is no beach access when your kinda led to believe there is, other than that it was fantastic!!
Steven R.Feb 2016
Our stay at Harbor House was spectacular. The house couldn't have been in a better location. It was close to Brookings, the redwoods, multiple state parks and a front yard overlooking the ocean with incredible views. The house itself was very cozy and relaxed. The beds and furniture were in great shape and very comfortable; the appliances and electronics worked very well; the hot tub was a real bonus. We hope to return next year and stay longer.
Joseph D.Feb 2016
I like everything about this house except the beach access (which was not that bad). I'm used to more accessible beach access but everything else about the house makes it worth the extra effort.
Pat B.Feb 2016
Perfect house and location for a quilter's retreat. 5 sewing tables, cutting table and ironing board and gorgeous view while quilting. Excellent quilt store nearby.
Beverly J W.Feb 2016
I was generally impressed with how clean & well stocked it was, & will be back. Love the view & the sunsets.
Kathy D.Jan 2016
I work a job that is Christmas based and soooo needed a vacation. My husband and I usually go to Mendocino/Fort Bragg area, but decided to head to Oregon this time. We have always loved the Oregon coast. We have stayed in many rental homes and have to say, this was one of the nicer ones and fantastic location. We fell in love with the whole area and will definitely be back. The home is adorable, real cozy and had all the comforts that we needed. It is close to another home, but never felt that our space was invaded. Love the set up of the house and the view of the ocean was unbelievable. We will definitely look into renting again.
Thank you for a wonderful relaxing time, it was much needed.

Deneice Z.Jan 2016
The photos do not do this home justice. It was updated in all the right spots yet charming and inviting with comfy beds, nice view and peaceful surroundings. We found it to be VERY clean and well kept. Convenient to all of Brookings and sweet, thoughtful touches.
Elizabeth T.Dec 2015
We stayed at the Harbor House for three nights during the winter holidays. It was such a sweet, cozy retreat. The house has stunning views of the ocean, a great kitchen, and the hot tub was amazing. Relaxing in warm water with the sight and sound of the ocean so close was just glorious. So glad we got to stay here! Already planning a return trip.
Terrie N.Nov 2015
We loved this house! We normally stay in smaller places when going to the Oregon Coast. This house was great, furnished with everything we could possibly need. They even had a spotting scope! Great Communication and the entire house was spotless!
Liz B.Nov 2015
very nice and would reccomend
Chris M.Nov 2015
This cabin is nestled on a cliff above beautiful beachfront.
there are many large rocks away from the shore which provide awesome wave crashes 247.
the house was not cleaned, clunky fixtures and some old furnishings.
we took our mother on this trip as she may not be alive much longer due to upcoming open heart surgery. we were very disappointed as the items in the kitchen were not clean, we had to clean pots pans dishes counters utensils etc. had to clean the bathrooms prior to using them.
we drove 7.5 hours from Sacramento only to have to spend the next 4 hours cleaning. we arrived at 5:30 PM.
Thank you for sharing your review with us. We sincerely apologize that housekeeping did not get the home properly cleaned for your stay; housekeeping management will follow-up with them. We hope you were able to enjoy the home otherwise!
Carolyn F.Oct 2015
We enjoyed this house very much. It was nice to be at the end of the lane and be right above the ocean. Very comfortable and homey and relaxing.
Jan K.Oct 2015
From my first contact with VACASA to last minute changes the staff was friendly and helpful. This visit went from spending time with my parents to a reunion with siblings and their children. There was plenty of room for us to eat and visit. This home is close to everything you might want to do in the surrounding area.
Lorraine J.Oct 2015
If you want a nice cozy getaway with a great view, this is the place! Pounding surf is the best way to fall asleep and this place will not disappoint. We had a great time, did not want to leave.
